I've found instead of having all the cards in your hand as the Marshall, its best just to use the notepad in your hand, and any cards you pick up, immediately cross off the notepad and put infront of you face up down. Much easier to play.

I was thinking about doing that, but you'd need to keep the notepad hidden from the Fugitive (I think).

Got my copy yesterday but only had 1 game last night - my wife was the Marshall as it was easier to explain to her what she needed to do.

Good idea! But I wouldn't place them face up. Part of the problem for the Fugative is they DON'T know what numbers the Marshal has. The Fugative might think they are doing a clever play by playing fake sprint cards only to find out because of the numbers the Marshal has it could only be one number.

My $0.02...

What is the sound of one card shuffling?

My wife and I have adopted this method as well. We use a box top as a make shift player shield to hide the pad behind.

It never occurred to me not to do this. I've always just kept the notepad leant against my (sturdy) drinking glass to make sure the fugitive can't see what I know.

PS: I only use the number side of the pad, so I only need to keep that away from the fugitive.
